Braunstone parkrun #233 4th April 2015

Welcome to this weeks run report.  Today we said hello to 41 newbies at Braunstone parkrun.  Hope you all enjoyed it and are looking forward to the next one :) It was great so many of you joined in with the Easter spirit, not sure I’d be able to run wearing bunny ears so well done to those who did!! Lol.  We had an EGGcellent 55 runners SCRAMBLE their way to a PB!!! Desford Strider, Ash Payne was the 4th runner to cross the finish line BATTERing almost 1 minute of his previous best!! Paul Jones of West End Runners and Gail Cooper of Beaumont both BEAT their times by over 30 seconds.  That’s a CRACKING achievement and a big well done to you all, and the rest of the 339 of you who ran on such a bitterly cold morning!

Hope you all had a SMASHING time ;)


Another reminder, Sunday 10th May is the Bosworth Half Marathon. A great value event on a course that takes in some lovely Leicestershire scenery around the historic town of Market Bosworth. For more information please visit their website


And finally, parkrun wouldn’t be as fabulous as it is without the wonderful volunteers!! Thanks to all who helped out this week, it’s very much appreciated by us all. If there’s anyone who wants to offer for future weeks then please let us know either via our Facebook page or by emailing us at


HAPPY EASTER from all at Braunstone parkrun
